    Just came today. LEM recently had a 20% off, sitewide sale, so I bought the same LEM stuffer as Dirtsailor, but I'm hoping my experience turns out more like the majority of LEM owners. I consider this to be my beginner stuffer, so hopefully there won't be that type of problems.

    Also picked up a nozzle for snack sticks, some casings, breakfast sausage seasoning, and some high temp cheese. 

    If this thing works out, I should be set for a while.

    Sweet..........[​IMG]   

    The maple breakfast sausage is pretty good. I thought it was a little strong though even though it was good. I would add the package for 5 lbs to like 7 lbs of meat.....

    Good to know, thanks!
     
  6. Personally, I would put in some sage, as well.

    Are you speaking from experience with this particular mix? Is there no sage in it?

    I can see what areoforce is saying. There is not a lot of sage flavor with this breakfast sausage and the maple flavor is over powering. That's why I said to  cut it down by adding more meat. I only made it once exactly as directed and people who ate it thought it was great.....Are we confusing you now...lol

    Good luck, I will never buy LEM again. Please purée and liquefy your sausage in order to run it into the tube. Also store your tubes in a hot oven at all times, or in a bag of dry rice that's the only way to keep stainless from rusting.

    They are sending me new tubes and a (1) new washer. Well once they have them in stock that is... The washer isn't going to help. I can run the lubed plunger into the tub and still get shavings. They should send me a new stuffer.

  15. I have a 15lb LEM stuffer .I have had it for about 3 years . I REALLY like it ! .... NO troubles 
     
  16. There is sage in it, but I like more sage.  Try it straight first, and then adjust how you like it after your fry test prior to stuffing.

    Yep fully explained theat the shavings were happening when running the plunger with nothing in the tub. Their response was they would ship the tubes and (1) washer as soon as they were back in stock.
